going extinct due to human activity, and also new species are invading ecosystems due to human activity. ecosystems form much more tightly connected networks than many other networks. what happens is that each species is typically within three links of all other species within the ecosystem. that's a lot closer than, say, the six degrees of separation that is supposed to separate human's familiarity networks, "who knows who" within, say, the u.s. and so these are tight networks where effects on one species can propagate to many other species quite quickly. one of the most famous examples of the effects of one species on the others within the ecosystem through the network that we've been studying is the sea otter example. back in the 1800s, the russians and several other western countries paid native americans to hunt sea otters pretty much to the extinction of them in many habitats across the pacific coast. when the otters went extinct, the sea urchins, what the otters ate, started getting really, really abundant. those urchins ended up eating a lot more kelp than usual. and th
